Green Tea, The Internet & Me

Many people continue to ask me exactly HOW to get started on a raw (or close to) raw food diet. I always say, "Just start!" You can't succeed without that first step. You'll mess up - we all do! We have to maintain our sanity here! There is no doubt in my mind that without a change in diet and the addition of supplements, smoothies and complete awareness of how my body works - I would be a very sick person right now.

We're all degenerating - it's what we do. We never really seek out the answers, do we? We get sick - we listen to someone we barely know who drives a Benz to work. Uh huh. We equate success with money. I equate it with health and happiness these days. Money sure as hell wasn't going to save me from my ailments. I spent alot of money trying to figure it out! We had to break it down to the lowest common denominator and what we found was shocking. The food.

My grandmother has been saying it for years - I never listened. Yep - it IS the food. Damn them.

So - with that rant out of the way, let's settle in and do some reading and video reviewing! Have your green tea with honey and lemon? Good...me too....let's go!!

Non Dairy Cheese Recipe

I eat lots of non dairy cheese. If you make them from raw seeds, they're a great source of protein. It's delicious on cucumber slices of mixed with salads (i.e. as a wrap). A great dip for kids, yummy on (sprouted) bread or as sauce in a raw vegetable lasagna. And I have to say, my non dairy cheese is quite good.

A few month ago, I had a friend over for dinner. She's a perfumer (makes perfumes) with extraordinary smell and taste. She actually thought she was eating goat cheese.

The recipe is very quick and easy:


1 cup pine nuts
1 lemon
sea salt
pure water


Germinate the pine nuts in water for at least two hours. Drain the seeds. Put them in a mixing jar. Add a squeeze of lemon and some sea salt. (I use about half a teaspoon salt). Blend everything well. You can use a hand blender, food processor or high speed blender. The consistency should be nice and smooth. Like a cheese spread. You can add some more water if needed.

Enjoy all of these recipes - we'd love to hear how you enjoyed it (or didn't!).
